Content Feeds: Connecting Feeds to Your Site

You can find a link in your left-hand navigation menu called Content Feeds, which is where you can integrate a variety of social networks and RSS Feeds, as well as even do a full WordPress import.

If you keep scrolling down, you'll see the following field that lets you add RSS Feeds:

Once you add one, it will let you choose between publishing the content or saving it as drafts:

By default, it will publish the content to your home page, but you can select other sections if you prefer. Note that we only pull content that is created following the addition of the feed. So you may not notice content flowing in immediately.

As you can see, you also have four extra settings to configure:

  1. Publish Posts Without Media: If ticked, you will only publish posts that are text.
  2. Add to Discovery: If ticked, all of the content from the feed will be added to your Discovery dashboard.
  3. Full Content From RSS: If ticked, then content from the feed will be imported as full posts on your site. If this is left unticked, the content from the feed will link out to the source of the content instead of creating articles on your site.
  4. Enable Direct Link Out by Default for Auto Published Video, Instagram and/or Tweets With Images: If ticked, the media content from the feed (e.g., Instagram embeds, Twitter embeds with images, videos, etc.) will link out to the original source.
  5. RSS Summaries as Subheadlines: If your RSS Feed includes summaries for posts, it will be displayed as the subheadline when ingested into your RebelMouse site.
  6. Autogenerate RebelMouse Authors From RSS Authors: This option allows you to ingest the authors your RSS Feed has for each post, as well as create a new author profile for each person in your RebelMouse account.

Publishing Content From the Feeds Dashboard

If you have selected to add your content as drafts, you have options on how to edit and/or publish them. If you go to the For Review tab at the top of the page, you will see all the drafts that have been ingested:

If you hover over any of the drafts, you will see a toolbar pop up in the top right-hand corner of the draft. From this toolbar, you have three options: Edit & Post, Post, and Remove.

Selecting Edit & Post will open the draft in Entry Editor, and then you can edit as you would any article.

Selecting Post will simply publish that article in the specified section(s).

Selecting Remove will remove the draft from the system.

Google Made Major Changes to Its Formula for Page Speed. Here’s What to Do About It in 2022.

Make sure your site is set up for success in 2022.

In the spring of 2020, Google let the world know that its Core Web Vitals would become the new benchmark for measuring a site's performance in its search results, known as the page experience update. Fast forward to more than a year later in August 2021 when, after much anticipation, Google's page experience update became official.

Since its rollout, developers have felt the impact of how their publishing platforms stack up against the new standard. Important decisions around the architecture of your site can now make or break your site's performance in the eyes of Google.

HTTP Archive, a tracking platform that crawls the web to identify trends and record historical patterns, has revealed how top content management systems (CMS) have weathered the page experience update through the creation of its Core Web Vitals Technology Report. RebelMouse consistently outperforms major CMS platforms on Google's most critical metrics since its rollout and into 2022:

Getting superior scores on Google's performance benchmarks isn't easy, either. The Ahrefs blog analyzed Core Web Vitals data from the Chrome User Experience Report (CrUX), which is data from actual Chrome users, to see how the web stacks up against Core Web Vitals. Their study found that only 33% of sites on the web are passing Core Web Vitals.

data from Ahrefs tracked on a line chart finds that shows only 33% of sites on the web pass Google's Core Web Vitals From Ahrefs.

Luckily, performing well on Core Web Vitals is possible with thoughtful, strategic changes to your site’s codebase. Here's what you need to know and how we can help.

Google Says They’re Increasing Communication About Algorithm Updates

Google Says They’re Increasing Communication About Algorithm Updates

If you feel like you’ve been hearing about updates from Google more often, it’s not just in your head. During a recent Google Meetup in NYC, Search Liaison Danny Sullivan said that Google hasn’t been launching more updates lately, but it has made a point to communicate about its updates to users more frequently.

Even though you may know when updates are happening more than before, you still won’t know about every little change that Google makes. In a post about the topic, Sullivan said that Google’s algorithm is updated thousands of times a year. Many of these incremental updates are so small that users and site owners won’t even know they are happening. Together, these minor updates add up to enhance Google’s search experience overall.

New Report: Email Is a ‘Key Tool’ for Building Loyalty

For the first time ever, the Digital News Report authored by Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism has dedicated an entire chapter to news consumption via email. The report analyzed data from thousands of readers of online news across 46 different markets. While the insights around email are focused on news content specifically, the data is useful for any publisher looking to enhance a newsletter strategy or even launch a new campaign. The findings in this year’s report shows that email continues to rise in popularity as an effective way to reach hyper-targeted audiences.

Who Reads Email Newsletters?

While email is not the primary source of traffic for most news outlets, it is more popular in the U.S. than in other countries. This year’s Digital News Report found that 22% of users surveyed in the U.S. use newsletters or email alerts, with almost half of them saying it is their main way of accessing digital news.
